WHAT: Otis College presents Nip Tuck Diptych, a lecture by Nader Tehrani of NADAAA and Sharon Johnston of Johnston Marklee
A combined perspective on geometry and figuration, borrowing from various disciplines -- from mathematics to tailoring -- Tehrani and Johnston interrogate the shaping of architectural forms. Operating at a range of scales from furniture and interiors, to buildings and landscapes, the diptych structure will offer an examination of the contrasting roles of the abstraction of mass and the articulation of skin in the work of the two practices.
WHEN: Thursday, January 27, 2011
Lecture: 7:30pm Reception: 9:00pm (doors open at 7pm; unreserved seating-first come, first served)
WHERE: The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA)
250 South Grand Avenue, Downtown Los Angeles, CA 90012
The lecture is free and open to the public. Additional information available at http://archive.otis.edu/calendar or by calling 310 665-6867 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
This lecture was made possible through a generous donation from The Angelo Donghia Foundation, and organized by the Architecture/Landscape/Interiors Department at Otis College of Art and Design, with Linda Pollari, Chair. The partnership between Otis and the Angelo Donghia Foundation began in fall 2008 with the first Donghia Designer-in-Residency presented by Eva L. Maddox of Perkins + Will | Eva Maddox Branded Environments™. In 2009, the Donghia Designers-in-Residence were David J. Lewis and Marc Tsurumaki, two principals of the New York-based architecture firm, Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis. The program's goal is to introduce internationally renowned and award-winning design professionals to Otis students and the greater Los Angeles interior design community. The Donghia Designers-in-Residence, selected for their contemporary and innovative work, are principals of their firm or senior designers in a large firm who are committed to teaching future designers.
